How Do I Remove Epoxy Resin Drips?

Posted on 6 Feb 13:48
The best way to deal with drips is to prevent them from happening in the first place. To do this you can take good quality painter's tape and run it along the underside of your piece to collect drips as they’re forming. By the 24hr mark, you can pull the tape off and the cured drips right along with it. 

Additionally, as you're applying your resin you can use a gloved hand or a foam brush to smooth away drips while they're still wet. 

If you do have cured drips on your actual artwork, the best way to remove them is with a Dremel or an electric sander. 

💡TIP:  Be sure to choose a high quality tape with good stick. Cheap painter's tape can absorb the resin and its low tack can allow the resin to seep in between the tape and your artwork.  

💡TIP:  Always remove the tape as soon as your resin is dry to the touch.  The longer you let your piece sit, the harder the resin will become and the more difficult it will be to remove the tape from your piece.
